Shatner Says Cellphones are Better Than Star Trek Communicators

Captain Kirk, while speaking at a Toronto press conference to shill for Canada's Rogers Wireless, says that cellphones today are more impressive than communicators from Star Trek. Assuming he's not just saying this because he's a spokes-rep for a phone company—like the time he said booking online was better than calling a travel agent (Priceline) or boning a green broad was better than doing a human (Greenpeace)—it's cool that technology has surpassed what people envisioned decades ago.

We suppose it would have been pretty impossible for ANYONE to predict 40 years ago that we'd have hand warmers and seat coolers that plug into USB ports.
